Islam, Christianity and Aggression

I put this up on Facebook, but thought I would save it too here for future reference.

For a while now, I’ve been seeing quotes to the effect that Islam is an aggressive religion intent on conquering the Western world. To that end, I thought it might be helpful if I made a list of majority Christian countries that have been invaded, occupied or ruled by majority Muslim countries at any point over the last century. Here is that list…


... okay, I couldn’t find any. Feel free to fill in the blank.

It’s strange, because it wasn’t hard at all to find majority Muslim countries that have been invaded, occupied or ruled by majority Christian countries over the same period:

Afghanistan
Albania
Algeria
Bangladesh
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Brunei
Burkina Faso
Chad
Djibouti
Egypt
Gambia
Indonesia
Iran
Iraq
Jordan
Kuwait
Lebanon
Libya
Malaysia
Niger
Palestinian Authority
Morocco
Pakistan
Senegal
Sierra Leone
Somalia
Sudan
Tunisia
Turkey
Mali
Mauritania
Senegal
United Arab Emirates
Western Sahara

And yet Islam is the aggressive religion of conquest - or so we’re told. Quite the puzzler, isn’t it?
